Everyone remembers a favourite or feared teacher. A figure who either ruins your school experience, or inspires you on to greater things. A truly dedicated and motivational teacher can make a world of difference, even more than money or material support. In fact, a great teacher can get results without these resources, and in many parts of the world these things are sorely lacking.

Fortunately in such hardship some hardy plants can grow and make a difference in some of the worst environments for learning that can be imagined. This edition of Learning World looks at three such people who have entered the world of education on a mission: save the children.
